of this whatsoever. >> having used the words that you used of inside control, it isn't much of a leap to determine that somehow you had a handle on it. >> it's not much of a leap to know that if, in fact, we said this ied was, in fact, obtained and it was not a threat at the time, that there was some type of inside control. it is almost a truism. >> having said that, it seems to me that the leak that the justice department is looking for is right here in front of us, and you disagree with that? >> i des agree with you vehemently senator, and i have talked to the department of justice. i conducted interviews with them and, you know, i am a witness in that as many other people are. and as you know, there are witness and subject and target. i'm not a subject, i'm not a target, i am a witness. because i want to make sure whoever leaked this information that got out to the press and that seriously did disrupt some very sensitive operational equities on the part of some of our international partners, that never should have happened. >> and you're in agreement with that, that this was a serious flaw in w
are working to kill us. torture is obviously a separate issue. once captured you no longer pose a threat, but people hiding in ungovernable tribal areas who still pose a threat must be dealt with. i understand the fears of progressives as obama conducts a foreign policy that looks like bush's. i am not pro-drone. i am pro-destroying al qaeda. i am pro-protecting america. i am pro-a better drone program and i am pro ending this war as soon as we can but i fear that's a long way away. as douglas macarthur said, only the dead have seen the end of war, and we may now be in a permanent war. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's yours. >> passionate patriotism from toure. thank you. it's monday, february 11th, and a pope has abdicated, the president prepares to face the nation, but republicans are still stuck on benghazi. >> the president's state of the union address. could be the president's last best chance to address a captive audience. >> do republicans have the leverage now? >> none of the things i ran on as part of the tea party have been fixed. >> i don't want to live with th
are at an all time low. seems to me some of those profits could be used to pay workers a bit more. let's be honest here though, the real reason republicans oppose the minimum wage isn't their conservative ideology. after all, what's conservative about subsidizing the profits of private corporations through welfare, food stamps and medicaid so they can underpay their workers? the real reason they oppose the minimum page is precisely because their corporate benefactors want the taxpayer subsidy of low wages to continue. they're all for corporate welfare. it's time for the gop's corporate sponsors to step up and take some personal responsibility instead of leeching off the taxpayer. maybe if they took a stand for an increased minimum page they could make they're rebranding substantive. until then in tragic irony the million s of people who serve our food, take care of our children, and serve us in countless ways will continue to be undervalued and forced in government dependence by the gop and the businesses these republicans are beholden to. now to a man who is beholden to nobody, martin
go forward for the cia directorship and hagel to be confirmed until the white house gives us an accounting. >> is it fair to say you are leaning against voting for him. >> that would be fair. >> maybe that's why we haven't heard the full story about benghazi. >> allow myself to introduce myself. >> keep in mind, a lot of the sources are spies and for the most part spies don't like their names used. >> my name is richie cunningham. ♪ how you like me now ♪ how you like me now ♪ remember the time >> good afternoon, and we start in washington where we can observe two very different ways in which we might honor those who serve with this country's armed forces. first, the president led a medal of honor ceremony for staff sergeant clinton remache whose actions during an attack helped save the lives of dozens of his comrades. and then there is the concerted effort by republicans to deny another distinguished veteran from serving his country as secretary of defense. a senate committee scheduled to vote on the nomination of chuck hagel tomorrow. senator john mccain says, i will n
our food, take care of our children, and serve us countless ways will continue to be undervalued and forced in government dependence by the gop and the businesses these republicans are beholden to. now to a man who is beholden to nobody, martin bashir starts now. >> thank you so much. good afternoon. it's thursday, february the 14th. and wayne lapierre has a valentine's card for the american people. grab a gun because the end is near. isn't that romantic? >> wayne lapierre is expanding his argument now. >> background checks will never be universal because criminals will never submit to them. >> after hurricane sandy, we saw the hellish world. >> come out to play. >> looters ran wild in south brooklyn. really? >> and if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark or you might not get home at all. >> this is so laced with racial overtones. the republican party, if they were smart, their leaders today with condemn it, but they're not smart. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. ♪ >>> a busy valentine's day
good guys and bad guys and guns. many of us find him hard to trust. his recent editorial in the daily caller spoke of supposedly rampant crime and murder in some place he called south brooklyn in the days after hurricane sandy. i live in brooklyn and there is no place referred to as south brooklyn but i think it's safe to say when he says that, much of the country envisions a place clogged with black people. if adam lanza with walked in a school in south brooklyn, we would probably not be having a sustained national conversation about guns. adam just smushed the pain of the gun epidemic in america's faw face but black people have been living with that pain for so long we're numb to it. black on black crime is a far more prevalent problem. we need greater out rage over that. i say this as the son of a long time gun owner who carries a gun to keep him safe as he moves through boston's black areas. when people say what has obama done for the black community, tell them whatever he accomplishes on gun control will disproportionately help us. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's
whatever he accomplishes on gun control will disproportionately help us. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's yours. >> thanks so much toure. good afternoon. i am indeed martin bashir and we are awaiting the president who is on the road again. he's about to speak in his hometown of chicago focused on erasing decades of poverty and preparing young people for the requirements of a modern 21st century world. he's also expected to touch on gun safety in a neighborhood devastated nightly by tragedy. something that he spoke about earlier today at the president's citizen's medal ceremony at the white house. >> a special note just to the families who are here from sandy hook, we are so blessed to be with you. i have gotten to know many of you during the course of some very difficult weeks, and your courage and love for each other and your communities shines through every single day and we could not be more blessed and grateful for your loved ones who gave everything they had on behalf of our kids. >> as we await the president, let's go to our panel. mark glaze is director of mayors aga
all right. that does it for requesting the cycle." martin, it's yours. >> you've pumped us up. it's monday, february 18th. president's day and the president is about to return home to washington where republicans are waiting to greet him with a cold shoulder and a wet blanket. >> i'm in palm beach, florida, not far from the president. >> the president of the united states sf supposed to lead. >> there's no leadership on the other side of the isle. >> if you want to look at ways to find $1.2 trillion in savings, look at obama care. >> the president was out golfing with tiger woods. >> they had a great time. tying ser a great guy. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. >> leaking this out does set things in the wrong direction. >> this is the president torpedoing his own plan. >> there are hot lights on you. you're wearing your lucky burlap unitard. >> who would you rather play golf with? >> senators john mccain and lindsey graham said they would not proceed with the nomination of hagel until the oaks provided more information about last year's benghazi attack. >> nobody i
chance on choice, women's right, gay rights. a fascinating story published yesterday takes us to ohio where a conservative advocacy outfit conducts focus groups with 20-somethings who voted for obama but were deemed within reach of the republicans until they play the word association game. for republican the focus groupers say corporate greed, old, hypocritical, narrow minded, rigid, racist, out of touch, hateful, 1950s. the article says young americans don't want to join a party that's on the wrong side of history. what's a young republican 2016 hopeful to do about the boulder between the gop and the white house? for rubio tupac is one small way to differentiate himself. to say i'm not out of the '50s. i'm modern and cool. what tupac is to rubio, rubio is to the gop. he's a human band-aid on a gaping bullet hole. most of his message is not that much different from romney's failed assault on big government, but he's not an older white man so maybe this time it will work. but the gop doesn't understand that voters see through the window dressing. they see through the new face p
